Gazpacho Salad

Home » Healthy Recipes » Gazpacho Salad



Our dear friends and neighbors traditionally have a party after the Indy 500. The forecast was for a scorcher…summer arrived with aplomb. I was asked to bring a salad to share, so I knew it needed to be cool and refreshing. Gazpacho Salad sounded like a divine idea.

As a huge fan of gazpacho, I’ve been drawn to a couple gazpacho salad recipes.  I’ll feature a more complicated, yet incredible, version by Julia Child later this summer.  This one just involves some chopping and whisking.  The vinaigrette was a perfect amount of tartness…and it complemented the chopped vegetables wonderfully. 

Gazpacho Salad…adapted from The Neelys

1 pound of Campanelle tomatoes, cut into eighths or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 small red onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 English cucumber, peeled and diced
2 six-ounce packages of baby spinach
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup sherry vinegar
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
1 tablespoon honey
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup olive oil

Combine tomatoes, onion, peppers and cucumbers in a bowl; toss.  Put one bag of spinach into a serving bowl, layer with half the diced vegetables.  Add the second bag of spinach followed by the rest of the veggies.

Mix all dressing ingredients except the oil.  Slowly add oil, whisking to combine.  Toss salad with dressing right before serving.


I have to give a plug to a new friend, Jennifer, who sells her fabulous baked goods at the Fishers, Indiana, Farmers’ Market.  Her business is called Sugar 4…and she is famous for her biscotti, nut rolls, and cookies on a stick. I sampled one of her 3-chocolate brownies at the party…and let me tell ya, she can bake!  Indy friends, please check her out if you’re in the Fishers area on a Saturday from 8 till noon.
